He saw it on Monday when Taker showed that he is not the phenom any more. We go to the footage from Monday night when Taker was attacked by Nexus.
Kane says that while the rest of the world waited in anticipation for the Undertaker to rise up like he always does, Kane says that he knew that Taker would lay there like the mangled wretch that he has become. He says that Taker’s powers have gone and they belong to him. When their saga is over, the Undertaker will be no more. The man once known as the Phenom will become a memory known as Kane’s Brother. At Night of Champions, the Undertaker will feel his rage and there is nothing that Taker can do about this. There is nothing that Taker can do to stop his demise. Kane says that nothing can stop him.
